Do you have a scalable idea and are you looking for support to bring your research to market? Or do you need business support for your feasibility study?

For scientists, doctors, and other employees of Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht, we organize a free and part-time 10-month program with workshops and coaching. You’ll learn about the most important topics related to starting a business, and you will be supported by industry experts.

The 10 month part-time program consists of:

  • INTRODUCTION: Two weeks during which science based startups jointly work on masterclasses, gain practical experience with entrepreneurial skills and engage in team building activities for 3 to 4 days per week.
  • CONTINUATION: During the rest of the program spend one to two mornings and/or afternoons per month on either a masterclass or a progress session. Next to that, mentors will be introduced who can give personalized advice and guide you through each step of the research validation journey.
